Source for fresh lemon verbena in Cambridge/Somerville?

also open to places outside this area but not too far away. Does Russo's in Watertown carry it? Thx.

  1. Have you checked Whole Foods?

    1. I have never seen it at the WF at Prospect and Harvard. I haven't checked, but I doubt they have it at the bigger store (River St) either.

      1. I would try the farmers' markets. Davis, Union, Central, Cambridgeport, or Harvard might have it, but if you're willing to go to the one in Copley, Gilson's Herb Lyceum is probably your best bet. Their number is 978.448.6499, according to their website, if you want to call and check with them first.

        1. I saw some at the Copley FM today.

          1. thanks for the tips; glad to hear there have been sightings recently; the Herb Lyceum people also go to Dewey Square which is close to my office.
